through monday. the high reasserts itself by tuesday, wednesday, thursday, and then the numbers get bounced back up to the near 90- degree range by friday. so first we cool it down, then we warm it up. you can get a chance of a few sprinkles in the north bay monday night and tuesday morning so it will be a week of variety. but nothing really dramatic as we look at the future cast. tomorrow at 11:00 in the morning, 11:00 in the morning, you can see extensive cloud cover in parts of the peninsula and parts of marin and sonoma county. the clouds pop by midday. so some sun and toward the end, high clouds come in. it will not be a brilliantly sunny day. clouds in the morning, clouds in the evening, and a little bit of a break midday. the cooling trend continues, then we get a slight chance of showers coming in. warmup will begin tuesday with sunshine and numbers zooming into the 80 disease grow range by thursday. next weekend. if you are heading out of the
bay area. doesn't look bad. 78, sacramento. showers in eureka. and fartherly cloudy skies at tahoe. back in the bay area, low to mid 70s will do it. 72 degrees in coopertino. in the east bay, some clouds to start out the morning and then sunshine in the afternoon. 72 at livermore and 72 for fairfield. marin and sonoma look nice. after the low clouds persist through about noon. novato 68 degrees. 72 at cloverdale. extended forecast, cooling trend continues through tuesday. and then, we are going to be looking for numbers to warm up wednesday and thursday and friday. look what happens. we are in the upper 80s by saturday with plenty of sun after wednesday. and maybe a sprinkle or two late monday night and early tuesday morning. that will be about it. >> all right brian.
